The 14th edition was recorded in high quality for a change and in hindsight for good reason. Today you can share the fruits in this pinnacle of noodlery. And temporarily available as a flac file as well (only untill december 9th)

|JNN019 - Ater - The last day again - Ater|
6 tracks of minimalist beauty, darkish atmospheres and enchanting sounds. There is a certain mystique about this release; as if tucked away far on the antarctic with but a small friendly fire. The cold breeze snuggling around the cabin comforting the loneliness that one is waited for. A place of envy perhaps it is not, but the chilled sound of 'the last day again' will certainly clasp the listeners ear placing them momentarily in the vast and cold emptiness of white; to remind us once again of t...

"Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) are electronically generated noises that resemble speech, but are not the result of intentional voice recordings or renderings." The act of capturing EVP activity to support paranormal research is a source of much contention between skeptics and believers. Dead Voices; White Noise disregards the arguments and goes straight to the heart of the matter - the recordings...

|JNN088 Tavaa Praataa - Lhetargija|
This album was played well over a month ago on NTNS radio and stirred a great big vibe inside. Luckily Julia Mangore has obliged in Just not Normal providing for a more permanent home for this radical album. Experimental IDM I’d say, but her myspace page says it all: Psychical sonic, phonic, sometimes tonic experiments by Julia Mangore and OctobrineXIII, since 2009.

But length never says anything about quality or its lacking off. Born June 6, 1992, Alexander Kibanov is an experimental music artist and composer from Antarctica.

|JNN084 Senja Ini di Tangga Keramik - AKU|
Of all the remarkable releases from all over the globe this certainly stole my heart with its most weird and live recorded tracks that meander somewhere between the sound of The Orb, Merzbow and Zappa. A remarkable trio indeed to make its appearance in an album notice. AKU is a group of artists that got together in the Smooth Studio in Bandang, Indonesia in Januari 2010. One not often hears music from this island group, but there is most definately a lively experimental scene happening there...

|JNN038 Logic, Beauty & Chaos - Bob Dickinson|
The twelve pieces on this album reflect an ongoing interest in the temporal processes underlying musical creation from two apparently contrasting yet ultimately similar musical contexts. Post-modernist, systems-based pieces for traditional classical ensembles stand side-by-side with more static electronic works. In the former category the obvious reference points might be the work of Steve Reich and other minimalists but in contrast to the extended time-scales operative in such work, the pieces ...

So, about 1 and 3/4 years ago, I finished a super long ambient track for my Zondagmorgen (remember this?!) project, entitled La Fin du Monde. My intentions, at the time, were to release it though IMP. That never happened, and it's been sitting on my hard drive ever since. I pulled it out, on a whim, this morning and listened to it on the bus today. It's actually better than I remember, so I thought I would send it your way to see if you would be interested in including it in as an upcoming JNN r...

|JNN035 Blank - Stereoscopic Laid - Blank|
"Stereoscopic laid is an experiment in sound. What you are hearing are not 'sounds', but in fact are 'images'. The idea behind this album was to generate sound tracks equivalent to stereoscopic images, in which you see a slightly different point of view of the same scene with each eye, creating the illusion of depth. The process was really simple, I chose for each track an image and I generated two similar versions with a minor deviation, similar to the perspectives that both eyes naturally perc...

Ever since I came in touch with the music of Joe Frawley I was instantly sold. That first I heard was Ritual Research on Clinical Archives which was like a potpouri of fushioned styles though an elevated level of musicianship sounded throughout the entire album. Since that time I’ve always tried to keep up to date with his works, but timemanagement is not an easy task. And then there was Angel Boxes; Joe himself wasn’t too certain how listeners would respond to this what I would call modern ...

MindSpiral is a series of collaborations between Mike Metlay and anyone who doesn’t hang up when he calls. This incarnation, mind6Spiral, resulted when Tim Walters (see e.g. JNN03) traded a night’s lodging (10 August 2008) for one hour of feeding audio from his laptop into Mike’s mixer, while Mike added his own sounds and a live audience on StillStream.com listened. It was a fair trade. Mindspiral Tim Walters

The third second releaser comes from Brighton, UK. Paul Nadin, or better known as Voder has previously released his most beautiful album ‘Island’ on the fantastic Distance Recordings netlabel. Where before he used the recordings of a visit to Iceland to create an aural description of the various locations which he visited and made field recordings of, this time he takes us to the fields. Which fields as of yet are unknown, but I think in all of us slumbers that hidden field of our youth that...

Live recordings from digital algorhythms. This is generative glitch that walks the far boarders of experimentalism, yet its content is so smooth and delicious.

In Greek mythology, Ixion and Tantalus were both legendary for their extreme hubris and the dire consequences that befell them as a result.

So many tales abound of the transgressions these two figures made against the gods that there is no one story to explain their unique fates. Yet it is precisely these unenviable fates for which they are most remembered...
